    The Washington Post staff members who produce the Doonesbury website are really good at finding 'Trumpisms'. Here's the one for today:

    From Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller:
    "Imagine, in the context of domestic law, if you said that the speed limit doesn't apply to you if you have a child in the backseat. Can you imagine what the consequences of that would be?... Ours is the humanitarian policy."

        Yes I do but again it's using current laws with a new policy, not new laws.

          Holy shit, is there no depths to which this fool will sink?

          Trump apparently threw Starburst at Angela Merkel and said "Don't say I never give you anything." This is being reported by multiple sources.
          This is how we are being represented to the world.

          Hey world,

          Look, I'm sorry. Our system if flawed, please give us a chance to fix this.

            It really seems like someone helped Trump get in charge, exploiting petty internal rivalries and greed, to allow for his complete obtusity, incompetence and lack of tact to do the work of weakening the US and getting it far from its own allies.
            Going fast out of rage, pride or boredom is like buying a ticket to crash.

              German news coverage about this talks about Trump throwing the candy onto the table, not at her. And it's a joke. A bad one that shows how little respect he has for his biggest allies - but a joke no less. This is one of those stories that shouldn't be that big of thing. This is on par with GW Bush giving Merkel a Neck Massage 2006.

              Not that big of a deal ... just another one of the long list of small blunders. And I personally don't care much about the small blunders. Taking the first chance to pull out of the final Statement of the G7 - not over stuff that was in it - but over something someone else said that he didn't like. That's the big stuff. The man isn't even putting America First, he's putting his Ego first. Just one of many examples where he's shown that he's not serving the country. Throwing candy onto the table (or "at" Merkel) and trying to be funny ... I wish that was the biggest worry ...

                On the table or at her, either way it is profoundly disrespectful and childish. It is probably even more mean spirited considering Trump only eats the red and pink Starburst, so in his mind, he's literally just giving her his garbage.

                  To be honest, that is my biggest concern with this presidency, the way he is handling international affairs can cause lasting damage. Domestic is much easier to fix after he is gone.

                    Melania Trump wore a jacket sporting "I really don't care" to visit kids at the border.

                    You really can't make this shit up, this administration is like Parks and Rec meets The Office but set in the White House with global stakes.

                            Apparently Trump is now taking shots at NATO, saying it is too costly. We are the only nation to have ever invoked Article 5.

                                But now he's saying it to NATO members at the G7.

                                  This seems to be the Trump doctrine: Insult your allies, and cozy up to autocrats. Remember, he will meet up with Putin very soon, probably to have Putin spank his ass with a copy of Time magazine with him on the front pagemake amends with him, and saying something like that about NATO would be music in Putin's ears.

                                  Also, Justice Kennedy is retiring from the United Stats Supreme Court. This means, there will be no stifling now, like the did to deny Garland the seat to make Trump appoint Gorsuch. No need to wait for the "opinion of the people this time. The Congress Republicans will work in express speed to confirm a replacement to get him confirmed before the mid terms. Here's a guess: They will find a (relatively) young super-conservative that will last way past the Trump administration's life.

                                  Whoever succeeds Trump is going to have a seriously tough job on his/her hands to clean up the mess and the damage he has made, if that is ever possible.

                                    I wish the Supreme Court was above politicization. Judge selection should function similar to jury selection. It shouldn’t come down to the existing process. My rationale is the judges should be as apolitical as possible, and have the ability to put the law above their own personal politics. Ideally the Supreme Court should be there to enforce existing law, not make new law (that should remain the jurisdictions of another branch).

                                      It is supposed to be, but the GOP began focusing on stacking courts at every level over a decade ago, same with local elections. They realized that by pouring money into local elections they could get their party into state houses and therefore control the voting districting;that means controlling the national election, which means controlling who gets appointed to the courts that oversee the gerrymandered districts and other GOP bullshit.

                                      The GOP is Party above Country and has been that way for decades.

                                        Same can be said of the DNC really. Maybe they weren't as successful at it but where they are they do the same thing.

                                          The Republican party is extremely blatant about what they are doing, where the Dems just tilt the floor a bit in their favor.
